In Memory of Charles Hooper

June 30, 1968 – February 15, 2018

Brother Charles E. Hooper, Assistant Athletic Director of GPBL, was a long-time member at Greater Providence Baptist Church and served in the GPBL since its inception. He served with love, commitment, dedication, and loyalty. He worked tirelessly and served to make sure the GPBL operated in a professional and Christ-like manner. He loved the kids and loved seeing them grow in their game and spiritual development. He will be sorely missed.
